10:19 pm
>> why won't he last? >> first of all, the 9-9-9 plan is really unworkable. >> why? i think it's very workable. what you don't know is it cuts payroll taxes. >> because it adds taxes, though, in nevada and new hampshire and it also hurts the low income folks. >> when you say would raise taxes to the low income folks, it would raise taxes on 1% on people who don't pay any federal income tax right now. >> plus they'll add onto people in naff and new hampshire and other key states. >> -- in nevada and new hampshire and other key states. >> during cain's tenure as head of the national restaurant association in the '90s at least two female employees complained of sexually suggestive behavior by cain that made them angry and uncomfortable. the source is according to politico and this is their exclusive. they signed agreements with the restaurant group that gave them financial payouts to leave the association. jack, why don't you take this?
10:20 pm
>> well, they're serious allegations but they have to be proven. i don't think anybody can bat an eye at that unless and until they go into court. they want to file a suit, a judge or jury finds for a settlement and find a judgment against herman cain, yes, we can take that seriously, but when you're talking about people that waited 15 years to bring complaint and now only bring it out because not guy is an international superstar, i think a lot of that is kind of selfish. >> you night agree the fact he's running -- might agree the fact he's running for president of the united states is enough? >> i did see the story that came online tonight. don't know if this is true tore not. we'll have to see a -- true or not. we'll have to see what happens in the next few days and weeks and is no. these are serious allegations and should be looked into. >> rick perry has a new plan to reform taxes and cut spending. is he trying to reinvigorate his campaign? >> i think perry still has a real shot. he's governor 6 texas, a big --

10:34 pm
saying okay, they can form one. all this came about because not washington post reported that a number of muslim students on their catch us did get together and filled out the -- campus did get together and filled out the papers necessary to form their organization and were told they can't. they seem to think they're above the anti-discrimination lawns because they're a catholic organization. georgetown tried that a number of years ago and after very expensive litigation found out they're wrong. they tried to stop a gay organization from organizing and the court of appeals said you can't do that. >> but in this case specificically what evidence is there the university wouldn't let the muslim group form? i understand you're basing some of this on a washington post article. >> this is at this point based on a post article and is being investigated by the human rights office. >> have you contacted the students in that article just to do some fact checking on this? >> i have not at this point because that's not the way the procedure works. i filed more than 100 race, sex and so on discrimination complaints about the office of human rights.
